Great private compound w 25 rooms, lovely grounds, big rooms, pool, and good restaurant. Within 30 minutes of SJO. We used for our last night in CR to reduce travel stress. Would also be a great SJ starting point or even business hotel.

Perfect first night hotel after a long flight. The hotel arranged an airport pick up for us. The room was very comfortable. All the staff were friendly & helpful. Food at the restaurant was great and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again.

The property is spacious with beautiful vegetation and flowers. There are plenty of little nooks and crannies throughout the courtyards to have privacy. The pool area is very well kept, as are the dining areas. Most importantly is that the staff goes out of their way to help.

Villa San Ignacio was perfect for our needs. We needed a place to stay for one night, between flights, and wanted something a little less corporate. This place was near enough to the airport to still be convenient, had beautifully landscaped grounds, a nice pool, and a great restaurant (we ate every meal there—partially because it didn't seem like there was much else nearby). Would stay here again!
